Toast to Thursday

Getting ready for the weekend, I thought a drink recipe each week would be a fun post to have. This little cocktail doesn't have a name, but it's from Food Network's Guy Fieri, and it's even patriotic! What more could you ask for?

Here is what you need:

1 ounce watermelon schnapps
1 big splash of cranberry juice
1 very thin slice of jalepeno pepper (just a slice, not the whole pepper!)
1 slice lemon
1 slice lime
1 1/2 ounces tequila ( It doesn't have to be Patron!)
1/4 ounce blue curacao
1/2 ounce simple syrup 
Watermelon wedge for garnish 

Prep time: less than 10 min.
Yields: 1 drink (to make a batch just make sure to keep the red and the blue liquids separate)

Mix the schnapps and cran juice in a shaker; pour into an ice filled glass. 

Muddle the jalepeno pepper slice, lemon and lime slices, tequila and blue curacao and simple syrup in the shaker. 

Slowly strain into the glass over the red layer. Garnish with Watermelon and enjoy!

The end product will look like this:

Cheers to the red, white and blue!
